I am taking my 37 Royal apart in prep for a frame-off restore. I found an interesting thing I have not seen before. Under each running board is a pair of rails that are rubber mounted (insulated) and are wired into the wire harness and grounded. Anyone have a some discussion on what these are supposed to do and where do I get new mounts etc?

Thanks for your help.

They would probably be the radio aerials. Popular wisdom back then was to mount them either in the roof space of island roofed cars ( pre 1936 / 37 ) or under the running boards principally to avoid ignition system and generator interference.
